. former president george w. bush resurfaces to talk about awesomeness? mitt romney and swamps. details next. last season was the gulf's best tourism season in years. in florida we had more suntans... in alabama we had more beautiful blooms... in mississippi we had more good times... in louisiana we had more fun on the water. last season we broke all kinds of records on the gulf. this year we are out to do even better... and now is a great time to start. our beatches are even more relaxing... the fishing's great. so pick your favorite spot on the gulf... and come on down. brought to you by bp and all of us who call the gulf home. the calcium they take because they don't take it with food. switch to citracal maximum plus d. it's the only calcium supplement that can be taken with or without food. that's why my doctor recommends citracal maximum. it's all about absorption. that[ that's a good thing,mends eligible for micare? but it doesn't cover everything. only about 80% of your part b medal expenses. the rest is up to you. so consider an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan, insured b
, he had this little george w. bush kind of smirk on his face, like he kind of like he knew he was going to get it, he kind of wanted it and sort of enjoyed it a little bit. >> well, i thought -- >> i don't agree with it but he went in there wanting to get booed for something. he didn't want to just get -- >> i'm not sure of that. i think this is really as david said, a replay partly of 2000. when you had george bush who went out as a compassionate conservative and he wasn't really trying to be necessarily compassionate to black voters. he was really trying to tell swing voters, swing white voters, independents, that you know, i'm not as bad as you think i am, nor is this party. i think this is a part of a replay in a very closely contested race. >> and it's worth noting that george w. bush eventually gave up on relations with the naacp saying he had a virtually nonexistent relationship with them. i do wonder if it does change the minds of independent voters who saw that. the best moments were when romney was being self-effacing, even in the beginning when he said he was speaki
doubled its effort to allow the george w. bush era tax cuts to expire for the wealthiest americans. a policy that should be an easy sell to the remaining 98% of americans. but where he needs to be fiery and passionate, he stood in a business suit behind a lectern in the executive mansion making a presentation that was almost apologetic. >> yeah, i'm not sure i really agree with that. i think the timing on this first, if you want to talk the raw campaign politics, the timing on this makes a lot of sense because we're having all this discussion about mitt romney's finances, mitt romney's effective tax rate, mitt romney's offshore holdings. this is a great time to introduce something like this subject. but what this really is, this is setting the stakes for this election because obviously, anything that obama tries to do right now, obviously anything the house republicans try to do right now in the bush tax cut, it doesn't matter. what matters is what happens in december, in the lame duck session. after this election. this is really setting the terms starkly. what obama will come up a
the country's focus on education, it seems like at one point, not long ago, even under george w. bush, we kind of could come together on the subject and say this has got to be a priority. but now it has become so partisan, i wonder as someone who is in a school setting in the hollywood vein but also is working on issues that affect students, what you make of that. >> well, it's kind of interesting that we look back to the george bush era when we could all get along. yeah, it's just so important. the santorum comment about everybody should have a college education, when a snob. it's almost as if we're dumbing ourselves down. a college education is a terrific opportunity for a child to bloom and grow. i know for me it awakened my natural curiosity for the first time in my life. it was a terrific experience. if a kid wants to go to school now it's really difficult. grants and scholarships are down, way, way down, and there are so many student loans out there that there's all this fine print and these people, kids and parents, go into these not knowing what they're saying and that's why this colle
remembers, george w. bush pulled away from john kerry. it was actually very tight before that as you see from this nbc news numbers, and once bush pulled away in late august and the very first week of september, he never looked back. this idea that no one's paying attention is sometimes disproven by the fact that if you get branded with maybe not the details, but the notion that you're not being straight, you're not trustworthy or the thing you're running on turns out to be bankrupt and you have to run from it, right, does that have a risk that by the time the conventions come it's too late for mitt romney? >> if i recall correctly, karl rove has always said he beat john kerry in like the spring of 2004, when they were hammering him with ads, where they created perception of him as an elite foppish flip-flopper. these earlier perceptions even if you're not paying attention can be very powerful. people do, are like tuned in. they do have it in the background. they understand something about bain and swiss bank account and in some ways it can be even more effective if it's kind of vague an
but he's never going to make george w. bush's numbers among latinos. it's really doubtful whether he'll make john mccain's numbers among latinos and that's the really hard deficit for him to make up. same with young voters. it's not whether they show up or not. it's the margin of victory for obama. at the moment, it looks like it will be a blowout with young people and with latinos. i don't know what's going to change that. >> i'm just surprised how anemic the effort has been on the side of the romney campaign understanding how much ground they have to make up. but of course, there are months left until november. maybe there will be something huge we just don't know about. >>> after the break, we the people or me the people? kevin bleyer is out with a new book suggesting some dramatic rewrites to the u.s. constitution. he's coming up next on "now." you have to scrub it first. no you don't. yes, you do! don't! do! whoa, kitchen counselor here. see cascade complete pacs work like micro-scrubbing brushes to help power away tough foods even in corners and edges. hmm! cascade. love it or
to george w. bush, they decided they lost because blue collar white voters in places like west virginia, you know, throughout, made inroads in kentucky, tennessee, arkansas, missouri, those voters were turning on the democratic party because of guns and what you've seen over the last decade has been in polling, there has been a real dramatic rise in terms of how important blue collar white voters think the issue of gun ownership is to them. the democrats have to make a choice -- >> i understand the demographics on that but howard, i'm going to stop calling him your boss. >> he is my boss. >> you're a pro in your own right. he said when was the last time you saw a deer in a flack jacket. these are high capacity magazines we can't even get banned after gabby giffords was shot. we know james holmes had a se semiautomatic weapon that went out on him in the middle of the shooting. if it had been working, many more people would have been killed and injured. the fact the internet is an unregulated gray area and nobody is doing anything incrementally to stop what he rightfully termed as a crime prob
parallel, said former george w. bush advisor, we know as much about romney as we did clint eastwood in "the man with no name." you know, how much -- we know this is obviously a line of attack from democrats, but republicans have got to sort of be scratching their heads, too, thinking well, what is in there. >> i'm going to be contrarian about this. >> i can't imagine. >> i think it's possible, i'm not advocating it or saying it will definitely work but it's possible governor romney can hold off on all this stuff until the fall. i'm not talking about the tax returns. i'm talking about talking more about his record and background. i think their theory of beating the president is run against him, make it a referendum on the economy, and he'll need to reassure people at the convention, at the debates. think about what people said about bush 41 at this stage, where he was well behind in the polls and people thought he's ill defined, what people know about him, they don't like. he seems weak. he gave a great convention speech, did well in the debates and that was enough. he wasn't trying to beat
, george h.w. bush, there was that sense, with w. there was the idea he's a friendly guy. romney is distant, and with the bain attacks he's the uncaring rich guy. he had the gaffe about how he didn't care about poor people. it's hard to come back now and try to claim you're here running for president on behalf of the downtrodden. >> what's also interesting, i think, is the notion that mitt romney is sort of playing this card, i think, i think, that he can be a sort of cipher until -- he can be sort of the vanilla alternative to a president who's wrecked the economy in the mind of the romney campaign. but, in fact, they are playing defense at this point. >> even the "wall street journal" is calling him out on these sorts of things. he and his own people certainly say, look, the voters tolerate that for so long and some point you have to fill in the blanks. i think he's moving from the vacuous state to getting in trouble if he doesn't start stepping up to the plate with definitive policies. >> i was shocked, speaking of with the the wall street journal" they had an intense analysis of the kno
back to your original question, look, republicans from christine todd-whitman to george h.w. bush to newt gingrich to others said we have a major problem here. we can acknowledge we have a problem. the question is how do we solve it. a more progressive angle is maybe throw more money at the problem, perhaps x, y or z. the conservative angle is maybe we should do a, b and c. the question becomes who is that leader, a la al gore or someone like that, that can force a national conversation for republicans and for democrats to literally sit down on the couch and to be able to have a thoughtful conversation about how we move the country forward in a thoughtful way. >> is that person david de rothschild? david, are you ready to lead the revolution? >> no pressure as i hold up the world here. listen, i think exactly the sentiments that are being said here, how do we act upon it. i think we have to basically just say look, conserve our resources, invest in green jobs. that's the real thing. there's a whole innovation race that could unfold that would create real jobs that would boost the
